A new TED talk confirms what I’ve always known…doodling is not goofing off, it’s a way to help you concentrate and think more creatively. For me,it keeps me present as I listen to what’s being said in a meeting or on the telephone by keeping my hands and eyes busy. And when I’m simply thinking something over, doodling becomes a form of meditation. It’s a great stress-buster. I think it helps me solve problems. And every so often, I draw something that’s not half bad.
Take a look at the TED video below.
